Summary: With most JL Audio items you feel like you get what you pay for. In this case it seems more as if I purchased the name. I hear very little difference in this speaker vs other speakers half the price. Not saying they were bad, but if I had to do it over again I would buy a set for a lot less and I dont think I would be missing out on anything.
Summary: You can get these speakers and the sound will be crisp, you will hear every note, and you will love every second of it...as long as you don't turn up the bass. If you do get this speaker (which is a great idea don't get me wrong) please do yourself a favor and get a sub woofer. Just a simple 8-inch will do. Even if you don't want a ton of bass, just because with these, you really cant pump your radio up very much at all with any baas going to the speakers.
Pros: Great crisp sound Great treble and mid Can go very loud (when next to no bass is present) Doesn't take an extremely powerful stereo to power Heavenly sound quality
Cons: Can't handle very much bass Please get a sub woofer with these
Summary: I installed these bad boys in my front and rear doors in my Cadillac. Installation was fairly easy except for the pain with the cheap terminal lugs. Installation also varies from vehicle to vehicle so I won't go any further in detail. They sound great for a 5.25" speaker and it's a definite upgrade from the paper coned factory speakers. Really crisp highs and good mids. The mid frequencies aren't great but they're not terrible either.
Pros: Excellent quality high frequencies. Cone materials in these speakers are a huge upgrade from factory paper cone speakers.
Cons: Terminal connections are cheap quality and didn't hold well at all upon crimping them to the speaker wires, even when I used the right tools for the job.
Summary: I installed these speakers in my front and rear doors in my Cadillac SRX. They sound great for a 5.25" speaker and it's a definite upgrade from the paper coned factory speakers. Really crisp highs and decent mids. The mid frequencies aren't great but they're not terrible either. The mids range somewhere a little bit above average.
Summary: I've got a pair of these in a 92 Civic running off a 12 year old Panasonic CD player and they sound great. Great treble and the lows are just as good. I listen to everything from old school hip hop to jazz to metal and I've yet to find a song that sounds bad. The only thing better would be to add more of these.
